Want your caravan to stay warm at night – without electricity? Then how about installing a diesel heater?
I supply and install diesel heaters from renowned German brand Webasto. That’s because professionally installed premium heaters not only add value and comfort to your van, they’re also much safer.
Don’t risk your safety. A reliable Webasto diesel heater gives you peace of mind with its critical safety features, including:
You can also enjoy a range of other benefits, such as:
And if you need help with servicing, spare parts or warranties? I can help in that realm too.
The most common types of batteries used in caravans are lead acid deep cycle batteries.
Suitable for caravans and camper trailers alike, I’m happy to install these for you. Thanks to their 5-7-year life and high charge cycle, they’re also a cost-effective option.
But when it comes to the latest in batteries, you can’t go past lithium.
A superior choice, their weight is only half of the lead acid deep cycle battery. With a fast recharge time and longer lifecycle, these are ideal for larger, 12-volt electrical systems.
If you’re after battery help, I can test your battery and recommend the best option if you’re after a new one.
Power your adventure with a battery management system.
Protecting your battery and its ancillary equipment, a battery management system gives you control over your caravan’s battery.
It will shut down anything that’s operating unsafely and manage your caravan’s energy consumption – so you won’t run into any unexpected troubles on your travels.
I use and recommend a BMPRO battery management system. Made in Australia, they can incorporate a solar regulator, DC input and electronic resettable fuses – all housed in one neat unit. They’ve also got a low voltage disconnect facility to protect your battery too.
Because a well-maintained battery is one that’s always charged.
As a caravan owner, you’ll be all too familiar with caravan sways. Whether it’s a sudden gust of lateral wind – or a large oncoming vehicle, every caravanner experiences these at some stage.
And the difference between a disastrous outcome and a manageable one? Sway control.
By automatically applying the brakes in the face of a sudden sway, you will improve your towing capability and stay in charge of your vehicle.
There are three types of sway control I can install:
This system monitors the caravan’s sway and if detected, will apply the brakes to the problem side of your caravan. DSC offers greater control with minimal speed reduction. It also harbours a microprocessor to monitor the level of braking versus sway – and adjust accordingly.
With lateral acceleration sensors inside the unit, ESC monitors side movements and significant sways. The moment a dangerous sway is detected, it applies the brakes – allowing you to regain control as quickly as possible.
Automatically stabilising your caravan in the event of a sway, this device distinguishes between safe and dangerous sways. The independent control of the left and right sides, in addition to its continual closed loop feedback, means it can quickly apply braking force.
Pack up and move your caravan with ease!
A motorised caravan mover system, Purple Line movers let you shift your caravan with a remote control – eliminating the need for a car or tow bar.
Since hitching and dehitching is so simple, you can say goodbye to the stress of manoeuvring into tight spaces or potentially damaging your caravan or tow vehicle in the process.
The motor can be easily attached and removed. And the lightweight design makes travelling a breeze.
Plus, with all the hardware and electrical components included, these little beauties have been designed with convenience at the fore.
As an accredited installer of Purple Line movers, I can add a mover to your caravan – and make your trip stress-free!
‘Thanks heaps, Tim! Your work is awesome, you are very helpful and know exactly how to fix any brake issue. I’d highly recommend your work to anyone.’
‘Couldn't have been happier. Great guy, very professional and friendly. A really good service.’
‘I engaged Stopfast for a problem with the Brembo system on my 2015 XR8 after a failed diagnosis by my Ford dealer.
Tim diagnosed the problem promptly and fixed it without fuss. It’s fair to say the service I received was excellent.’
‘Tim looked after my boat trailer with new brakes and a service. His knowledge of his trade is extensive. His prices are not over-the-top and I'll happily use Stopfast for many years to come.
I passed on Tim's contact details to the primary school where my children attend for some trailer repairs and servicing. The price again was excellent and the school is more than happy to have Tim back again too.’
‘Tim has just finished installing a Webasto diesel heating system in our new caravan and we are very pleased with the neat, tidy and well-performed work. Over some years now, Tim has looked after a number of vans we have owned and apart from brake and bearing maintenance, he has installed a Dexter Sway Control system, an electric jack, changes to various towing hitches and more.
We regard Tim as a reliable and skilful person whose work is thorough and careful. We highly recommend Tim and Stopfast.’
‘Stopfast was recommended to us by a fellow caravaner. So we travelled from Albury to Mornington for a bearings and brake service. Tim was very courteous and did a tremendous job. He will be working on our caravan in the future. l can highly recommend Stopfast – rarely in the industry do you meet a person as genuine as Tim...👍.’
‘Tim was really efficient and knowledgeable. He has a fantastic service and is a nice fellow.’
‘Tim has serviced our Kimberley Kamper trailer now for two years. After some earlier bad experiences with other mechanics, it's reassuring to have an excellent mechanic that I fully trust. As well as doing a great job on routine maintenance tasks like brakes and bearings, he is versatile and has done an excellent job in the installation of a Dexter electric hydraulic system and Webasto diesel heater. His mobile business is also very convenient. The range of tools and spare parts he has on-hand amazes me. A good communicator and always reliable with dates and times.’
